Value & Carefulness

JRD Tata had a friend who used to say that he misplaces and loses his pen very often. Thus he uses only very cheap pens so that he need not worry about losing them. He was however worried about his carelessness .

JRD suggested to him to buy the costliest pen he could afford and see what happens. 

He did that and purchased a 22 carat gold Cross pen. 

After nearly six months JRD met him and asked him if he continues to misplace his pen. 

His friend said that he was now very careful about his costly pen and he is surprised how he has changed! 

JRD then explained to him that actually it was the value of the pen that made the difference and there was nothing wrong with him as a person!

This is what happens in our life. We are careful with things that we value most.

If we value our health, we will be careful about what and how we eat;
if we value our friends, we will treat them with respect;
if we value money, we will be careful while spending;
if we value our time, we will not waste it.
if we value relationship we will not break it.

Carefulness is a basic trait all of us have,we know when to be careful! 

Carelessness only shows what we don't value
